Spiritual Meme Question Thirteen

13-- What is a gift you've always wished to receive but haven't yet? This can be as literal or figurative as fits.

What would a person want who has everthing he needs and who  wishes to be the sort of person who wants less  than he has?  The gift of loss?  Serenity?  Love?  A sled named "rosebud?"

My first thought was "wisdom."  Solomon asked for, and got that.  But so far as  i can tell it never did him or anyone else much good.  There is a saying, be careful what you wish for, you just might get it (ala "The Monkey's Paw").

World peace? (remeber the monkey's paw)  A New Earth? (remember the monkey;s paw)

It turns out that i don't know enough to make a wish that might come true.

How about the best (for me) book i haven't read yet.
No, how about good health for my wife.  (But i forgot "The Monkey's Paw."

Writing prompts: only ones that would be hard for you to answer please! {FULL!} - the eclectic ecstasy of an ecphorizing eccentric

I don't usually read LJ as if I were reading a literary magazine. Never, in fact.

But this is a really good short piece.
